  1. 4 Sea Interludes from Peter Grimes Op 33a - Benjamin Britten
  2. The Lark Ascending Op 50 - Ralph Vaughan Williams

Talented young musicians from the UK and Russia come together in this orchestra inspired by the deep friendship between the two composers for whom it is named. The Four Sea Interludes, titled Dawn, Sunday Morning, Moonlight and Storm are wonderful impressions of the Suffolk coast Britten loved, while The Lark Ascending is an evocation of the English countryside. The Jazz Suites (more Kurt Weill than New Orleans) represent the lighter side of Shostakovich’s music, while his score for the magnificent 1964 film version of Hamlet, including spoken text from the play, is stunningly effective and atmospheric.

Pre-concert talk, 6.30pm | The Forge
